However, this review is about this edition of his works and not the poet himself. This edition is great if you merely want a copy of all his works to puruse at your leisure. Unfortunately, if you are planning any scholarly work upon the subject of Byron, other editions would be better suited.
This edition does not contain any critical interpretations or even footnotes for some of Byron's more obscure references. Unfortunately, what becomes the largest problem with this edition is the lack of line numbers. As a student of drama, it is very problematic to have no line numbers from which to reference the work. You could take the time to count them, but that would be ridiculous work especially if you are studying his mock epic, "Don Juan."
This work is impressive for compressing all his works into a single volume. The type is very small and the lines are almost always separated onto the next line.
Overall, this is book is a great collection, but only for the reader and not the student or scholar.
This edition, I think, is beautiful, though I'd prefer hardcover if it were available. The only precaution I have is the size of the print: minuscule. I'd suggest an eye exam before reading from this book. Maybe keep a magnifying glass handy, or wear powerful reading glasses. Otherwise, just enjoy the poetry and don't worry about obscure allusions. I think this book can be savored without annotation by editors who only direct you what to see. We don't need people to tell us what to read or what not to read. Let us do our own editorializing.Selected Poems of Byron (Wordsworth Poetry) (Wordsworth Poetry Library) This is a facsimile of the Oxford Standard Authors Byron. Thought I'd do you a favor ;-)
